Everyone says, “I wish I had got this opportunity!” while forgetting the same had knocked their door sometime back when they didn't capitalize it. No doubt that people miss out on a number opportunities every day. Opportunity is an occasion that makes it possible to do something which you want to do. It is your chance to showcase what you have got.
The first step to make best out of an opportunity is to clarify your goals. You need to be sure what you want. Then comes preparing yourself mentally. Staying into your comfort zone wouldn't allow you to make the best of the opportunities you get. Recognise the opportunities. They never come wrapped in as a gift. It is something we need to recognise. One must learn to make decisions. An opportunity desires someone who is responsible and committed. One has to be in the state of readiness. Opportunity strikes your doors but if you keep the doors closed how will you get a chance to prove your worth?
We do have opportunities coming daily. The question is whether we make the most of them or not. When an opportunity presents itself, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. Pay attention, be diligent and make an impact. Winston Churchill said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity and an optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.” Each new day is a new opportunity to be better. We need not wait for any extra ordinary opportunity, just need to seize the common occasions and pave our way.
Make the most of the opportunities or else afterwards you'll regret for the chances you missed. Rise up...start fresh...see the bright opportunity in each new day.
